Can you imagine what could happen if Andre Ware or any of the Giants D linemen get a blindside hit on Robert? He might be a goner, and then you are stuck with Grossman? Shoot you would be better throwing Gus back there. Gus threw too mant INTs during his stint here, but he knew how to get into the endzone as well. Grossman is just well... plain gross!
I dunno about this. Cousins is going to develop into a starter QB and I doubt he's going to be happy playing second fiddle for more than a few years.

Niles Paul has shown me nothing to warrant him replacing Cooley or Paulsen. I hope he is really the TE we are trying to trade, behind the scences.

Alfred Morris Looks great. he gashed the Bears 1st team defense in the start until the line started to falter.

Hopefully Cousins continues to look good and earns the Number 2 spot. I don't want Grossman to see the field this year during the regular season.
Cooley is gone, its pretty evident. Its sad, but Cooley will not be making the team.

Re: Redskins at Bears Post Game Thoughts

This was my first opportunity to watch the Skins this year or RG3 as a Skin at all. No surprises he made some rookie mistakes, but his athleticism was fun to watch. Felt both lines were overmatched in the first couple of drives.

Re: Redskins at Bears Post Game Thoughts

How many YEARS does it take most QBs to learn the NFL? 2-3?

It's RGIII's second pre-season game.

Comments by the D after the game suggest that they we're trying some things, leaving people in tough situations to see how they'd react, etc. Can anyone verify this? I guess the "experiment" failed...

Maybe what we learned from the second half is that we have more depth on the roster than last season?

I am excited to see if Hightower can get some of his mojo back. I am worried that Helu is too fragile for the NFL.

The O-line, obviously, is the biggest concern. Could have used 18 mil more in the offseason there...

(Nothing so nutty as an NFL message board after a preseason game!!! Glad to be a part of the madness!)

Positive Redskins-related thought: I thought LaRon Landry played a pretty good game.

He didn't have his name called at all. He must've been doing something right.

Re: Redskins at Bears Post Game Thoughts

Least sacked QBs since 69 with at least 2,500 passing attempts
Manning 1 per 31.2 att.
Marino 1 per 31 att
D. Williams 1 per 29.8 att
Rypien 1 per 26.9 att
Two with great olines and two with a quick release and mediocore olines. Id rather have a beefed up oline.

The Bears defense is going to make a lot of teams look bad this year, even with their starting lines healthy. We came in starting 3 backups (Polumbus, Hurt and Gettis) and a dinged up Williams not to mention 2 rookies in the backfield in Griffin and Morris.. Not making excuses at all for the performance but we need perspective about the status of things. We did some things on offense good, but left lots of room for improvement.

On defense, I'm HOPING we were experimenting with some things in coverage, if not then YIKES it's going to be a long season. Cedric Griffin looked S L O W! Not only on the Marshall completion to start the game but on the play on the sidelines as well. I'd rather see Jones or even Barnes (I never thought I'd say that) out there. No Fletcher surely didn't help..

End of the day, it's the preseason, hope Rak and Merriweather are back soon and looking forward to the RG3 home debut.
I was expecting a little better performance from some of the o-linemen, since some of them will probably see a lot action this year. That wasn't the 85 Bears defesne I saw out there.

The secondary is in trouble. Outside of Wilson no one can cover.

You never know what you're going to get when it comes to preseason game plans. Did the Bears plan a little more? Maybe so. I thought RG3 looked pretty good as far as QBs go. Didn't get a lot of opportunities when he was running for his life. The passes he did complete I was very happy with.

Cousins looked great against backups, but you can only play the people in the game at that time and I thought he owned them. Good to see he was decisive and good to see Robinson and Briscoe step up.

In the end, Cedric Griffin is not a starting corner. Cutler just picked his ass apart. It was either a quick drop or max protect so that's part of the reason we didn't get there for pressure. I was STILL super pissed we lost over a freaking 57 yard field goal after how well Cousins did in the 2 minute drill.
Also, I noted that in the third quarter I think it was the announcers pointed out that Haslett must have gotten tired of only rushing 3 player from the line and started rushing 4 or 5 rushers which made the defense get their sacks. I'm thinking Haslett used only 3 DL cause he wanted to see how those three would play. Maybe trying to see if they could get a decent rush with just 3DL, maybe trying to decide who played the best to keep on the roster.

There is a lot of behind the scene stuff we fans don't know about, putting the defense in specific situations just to see how specific players will do. Preseason isn't all about wins.

Cousins is locked in for 3 years. I don't want to annoint him yet based on pre=season (see Pineapple Jesus), but he is showing some ability and I agree there's a good chance he develops into a capable starter. If we are able to trade him for a 2nd or better in the off-season after his yr. 3 it's a great win for the FO. If he does develop as you say, you're 100% correct we won't be able to pay him what he'll get on the market.

Re: Redskins at Bears Post Game Thoughts

They tried experimenting a bit with Hall at safety yesterday, to not much success.

And, barring injury, there is zero chance of Paul not making the team

I'm not saying our OL will be awesome, but as I already said with the DL and Haslett only rushing 3 people the whole first half, maybe the OL was only playing man to man instead of zone blocking? Maybe the coaching staff sent in plays that wouldn't completely stop the Bears cause they wanted to see if RG3 would change to the right play call or if he would pick up the blitz and look for his hot WR? There is a lot we don't know.

They were even talking about how the coaching staff was using some of Baylor's spread offense.....maybe they were trying some of those plays out?

When the runs not working ya gotta go to the pass to get the defense to back off the line, but the Bears stacked the line and I didn't see as many roll outs this week which might have backed a defense off a little.

Lastly if the Bears are a SB contender why give them any decent film to watch later if we happen to make it into the play offs?

I'm not sure why people have the idea of fixing Cousins up prim and propper then trading him away for picks? I mean I get the idea but who is supposed to start if RG3 is out a game or two? I'd rather have him then Grossman as backup. And the only reason teams like the Patriots get away with it is cause they already have a #1 and #2 QB so they develope a third and trade them away for picks.

We don't have that luxery.
